May 6th - Leschi-Quiemuth Honor Walk/Run (Pre-Registration Required)
It is Nisqually Tribe’s pleasure to once again host this event. In 2013, the Nisqually Tribe and Joint Base Lewis McChord hosted the event, and it was a great success.
Our Walk/Run/Tour will be an event to remember. We have secured the Joint Base Lewis McChord Military Reservation again for 2017; this was formerly the Nisqually lands pre-1917 condemnation.
The advanced walkers and runners will be using the route known as “Range 91” to Clear Creek Fish Hatchery, via the condemned allotments and Church sites. The walkers who want to take the “Short Walk” will take the bus tour to Ross Cemetery, and complete the 2.5 mile walk to Clear Creek Fish Hatchery. There is a MAP attached with details.
We are pre-registering all applicants because this is a sensitive area, and we must have advance notice of everyone’s arrival. Tribes wishing to send a van or bus on the tour must register the vehicle by Friday, April 21st. All participants will be shuttled in between 9 am and 10 am, and the walk/run/tour will start promptly at 10:00 am. We cannot make any exceptions. If you are not on-site and pre-registered, you will not be allowed to start late.
The shuttle tour begins promptly at 10:00a.m. The tour will be up to two hours long, with restrooms provided. This tour will conclude at Clear Creek Hatchery. There is a lot to see at our hatchery! Lunch will be served at Clear Creek Hatchery. Participants will be returned to the Youth Center.
